Retirement Card


Hope you are having a great August.

We have a colleague who is retiring this week and I have made this card for him.

I have used a JOFY stamp - this is a mini stamp, about the size of a credit card but just perfect for this retirement card and coloured with Copics.  I have used an embossing folder which I thought looked a bit like waves.

Hope you like it. Kx

Lavinia Stamps Challenge - Anything but a Card

Hi Everyone

First of all, congratulations to Barbara Cleggett who won the July Challenge - a very worthy winner. Remember the prize is £40 worth of Lavinia Stamps and you can enter here.

For anyone who has not entered yet - why are you waiting?  This month you do not have to be a card maker - in fact you need to make anything but a card - an exciting challenge.

Here is my sample this month - a canvas.

I used acrylic paints for the background and modelling paste through a couple of stencils to add some interest to the corners.  For the main image I have used the beautiful Mushroom Dwelling.  This stamp is new to me and I have to say it is a dream to use and colour - I love, love, love it!  I also used the very versatile stamps - willow and zen leaves.

Hope you join the challenge and good luck! Kx
